Kit Harington's Game of Thrones Co-Stars Crash His SNL Monologue

Kit Harington's Game of Thrones Co-Stars Crash His SNL Monologue

"Game of Thrones" star Kit Harington hosted the April 6 episode of "Saturday Night Live" and naturally had to field questions during his monologue about "who wins "Game of Thrones".

A fresh-shaven Harington opened the show by joking that he was more of a "pre-pubescent Jon Snow", or "Jon Snow if he played for the Yankees", because of the New York Yankees' reputation for enforcing a strict hair policy for players. Leslie says, "You keep telling me, 'I'm the King of the North, we can order Uber Eats every night!'", with Harington assuring her that his jewelry making business is about to take off. And, that's when Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) pressed an interesting question: "Could you just give us a general sense of how it ends?"

The highlight was a pop-up by Harrington's real-life wife and former co-star Rose Leslie who played Ygritte in the show. Even though she's in the show, it's just "been so damn long since the last season".

Thankfully, John Bradley (Samwell Tarly) was nearby to offer his good friend some support. "I know, but I forgot", Clarke replies. "Plus a lot of my scenes are talking to a dragon, which is just a tennis ball on a green pole". When Harington said he was busy during that time, Bradley retorted, "Wow, they were right".

The best, though, came via Game of Thrones: Special Victims Unit, which featured cameos by Ice-T and Mariska Hargitay as they investigated the graphic and sexual crimes committed in Westeros.

Game of Thrones will return for an eighth and final season on April 15 in India. But rather than take on the final season of the series, "SNL" instead looked ahead at the "prequels, sequels and spinoffs" still to come.

One such is Castle Black, "a sexy moody drama about forbidden love" featuring Jon Snow's torrid romance with a female wight - which makes a good point that it wouldn't be that weird since he is also technically a zombie.
